Down by the Sea with Alicia

Hello Quick Quotes followers, Alicia posting today.  I have for you a Pinterest inspired layout. I searched beach layouts to get some inspiration when I found this one, I just had to make it my own.  

I used all sorts of die cuts but my favorite element is the doily that I inked up with Sunset PowderPuff Chalking Ink and Peach Tree PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  The layers fit perfectly on top of this large doily.

I also made my own bottle with a layer of paper and a layer of acetate. The paper has a very subtle image of ships on it so it is my "ship in a bottle".  I cut a small piece of cork to serve as the stopper and hold the two layers together making your own embellishments can be so fun!

Farmhouse Inspiration with Donna!

Hi there! Donna here to show you a layout I have created with Quick Quotes' new line Farmhouse. This paper is so beautiful, it is stunning! The colors are so soft and can be used with all sorts of layouts and cards.

I cut out the flourishes and the heart using peach colored cardstock, and added flowers and the burlap butterfuly in the upper corner of the photo.

In the left corner of the photo I added the two tags that are on the Farmhouse chipboard die cuts and added some pearls to give it a little something extra.

Gift Card Holder with Martha

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a Gift Certificate Card Holder using the new collection papers.

It is now more common use gift certificates or gift cards than presents and I think it's a good idea to dress these modern gifts because you have the opportunity to demonstrate how important that person is to you. In today's project I am using one complete sheet of Farmhouse 100 paper and I chose the flowers for the outside of my project.


  • Take a 12x12 page
  • Make score lines in 3" and 9"and fold the marked lines.
  • Turn your paper 90 degrees and make score line in 6". Fold and mark your lines using the bone folder.
  • Take the center point and bring it back to the outside line on both sides. With this step you will have four corners shown in the photo.
  • Close the card and mark again all the folding lines using the bone folder.
  • Cut the outside center lines in triangles, score and mark 1" from the outside borders in both sides.
  • Add adhesive inside and outside of the border created in the previous step and paste. Mark all the lines and reinforce with the bone folder.
  • Decorate the outside face.
  • The size of the inside card card is a regular card: 5-1/2"x4-1/4"

To decorate the gift certificate card I used two more papers, the Whistlin' Dixie 107 paper for the banner and the Anchors Aweigh 103 paper for the flower. I inked the borders of the flower with Rusty Nail PowderPuff Chalk Ink and a pearl brad on the center.

Amazing, Beautiful and Happy with Alicia

Good morning! Alicia posting today with a sweet card I made for a friend's recent birthday.  

I was all excited about using my new tattered bow die with the newest Quick Quotes papers! They are perfect together since you can easily use the reverse side and have a choice of gorgeous bows.

I popped the stickers up by sticking them to card stock first then using pop dots and of course, finishing off with inking the edges with PowderPuff Chalking Inks.  I also just love the hit of shimmer in the ribbon.  The button is from this month's Club Q,

Summer Memories with Donna!

Hi Donna here today with a layout I did using Quick Quotes new line Anchors Away!

In July we had the pleasure of taking our oldest granddaughter to the beach for a whole week. So much fun and so many memories, so this line is just perfect to scrap all your beach memories!

"Summer Memories"

The flourish and the anchor I cut from the Silhouette using Quick Quotes paper. I made a little "shadowbox" type embellishment.
  • First I adhered the metal frame to then layout with a piece of paper in the background.
  • Then I mixed tacky glue and sand from the beach until it had a pretty thick consistency and took a small spoon and carefully laid the sand on the bottom to make the "beach".
  • Last I took a couple of tiny seashells we found and glued them on top of the sand. I loved how this turned out, and once the sand was dry it looked great!
  • My enamel dots I made them by using Perler beads. There are tons of Youtubes out there on how to do this (just google it) but basically you take line up the Perler beads (this takes forever if you do them all at once!) on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake.

Card Inspiration with Martha!

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you another selection of the new collection of decorated papers.
I am in shock with these papers and as you may notice in our recent projects, all of us are making great creations with these. For today I prepared a thank you card using the Whistlin' Dixie and Farmhouse Designs.

The stars of this card are the papers! I love the Farmhouse 103 paper for the background.
  • I wrapped some linen thread around it and attached it to a whisper white card base.
  • Then I stamped a Thank You sentiment using a PowderPuff Evergreen Chalk Ink on Whistlin' Dixie 109 paper
  • I cut the label using one of the die cuts from the Lots of Label Collection from Stampin Up.


I used three different sizes of Scallop Circle Punches to make the Whistlin' Dixie 107 paper flowers by snipping between the scallops, and I used a Small Ivy Die Cut from DieNamites to cut the leaves and Old Olive card stock. The pearl is from the August Club Q.
